What we do

Burnt Toast Labs has two divisions; commercial and federal. Each division supports the other using a common technology stack that can consequently support multiple markets. The majority of Burnt Toast Labs clients are government organizations in space and human intelligence arena.

Space includes satellites, ground stations, and radar applications for the federal government.  The focus is largely on space systems for the US government and missile development manufacturers. Their short term strategy is to branch into rockets and robotics.  This does not necessarily mean that they will “build” rockets but that they would be a valued partner that enables resulting launches through automation, robotics, analytics, and of course, machine learning.   

Human intelligence (HUMINT) is intelligence gathered by means of interpersonal contact, as opposed to the more technical intelligence gathering disciplines such as signals intelligence, imagery intelligence and measurement and signature intelligence. Burnt Toast Labs uses data science to enhance the data sets discovered in these areas. This helps the US government intelligence units work smarter and more effectively.
